If you are a business traveler, or are looking for a clean room and a soft bed to lay your head at the end of the day, generally close to downtown Pittsburgh, this is the place for you. The staff are friendly and polite, the complementary weekend breakfast buffets have a fair variety of selections to satisfy the person who just wants to grab a bagel or muffin and a cup of coffee, or wants a full sit-down meal with eggs and sausage.
On the downside, the location is an office park in the middle of nowhere, in terms of immediate nearby amenities. Not that it's in a run-down industrial area or anything -- it's just surrounded by new corporate office buildings, and not exactly the pastoral hideaway that the pictures and descriptions led me to believe.
If you enjoy staying *at* your hotel, and not moving far from it, this might not be the best place. If all you need is a place to hang your hat while you're off doing something else, or just a clean, quiet place to go over some legal briefs, it's all you could hope for.
Family of five -- not so much.

Thank you so much for taking the time to write a review of your stay at the Homewood Suites - Pittsburgh/Southpointe! As you mentioned, we are located in the middle of the Southpointe Business Park. It typically provides a quiet setting, away from the hustle and bustle of the city center. The business park is currently building "Southpointe Town Center" across from our hotel. Opening in the Fall of 2013, it will include several restaurants and shops. So when you stay with us next time, you will have much more to choose from.
We hope to see you again soon!
